How to Make any Kadai Non Stick

If you are using any non-stick utensil to toss rice then chances are that it will stick to the vessel. So to make it non-stick, simply heat the kadai or any vessel that you are using to very high heat. Add 2-3tbsp of oil and let it smoke. Turn around the vessel to make sure that oil is coated on all sides. Turn off the heat and using a clean cloth rub that oil on the inside of the vessel. That is it the vessel is non-stick for one time cooking.


For Mexican Fried Rice

Heat a kadai and add oil and once the oil is hot add garlic and onions and give a quick stir. Add in carrots, boiled corn, boiled rajma (kidney beans), capsicum and stir them around for 30 secs.
Sprinkle oregano, coriander powder, cumin powder, chilli powder and freshly made tomato puree. Cook the spices and tomato so that the raw flavors get rounded. While cooking sprinkle some salt to taste and then add boiled rice to it.


On top of the rice add some chopped tomato, coriander, salt, olives, jalapenos, lemon juice and then using a flat stirring spoon and mix them up. Cook for 3-4 mins and sprinkle some more freshly chopped coriander. Check for seasoning and adjust. Mexican fried rice is ready, serve it hot.


Tomato Salsa Sauce

In a clean bowl add onions, green chilli, tomato puree, salt, coriander, tomato ketchup and lemon juice. Check for seasoning and adjust. Tomato salsa is ready, serve it with Mexican style fried rice.
